The CAP-PPI-0201BB-001 is a substrate scalable Global Model™ for the Passive Plus P/N 0201BB surface mount chip capacitor family. The models are for use with microstrip applications and account for substrate (or printed circuit board) related parasitic effects up to 65 GHz. Models account for up to two higher-order resonant frequency pairs beyond the fundamental series resonant frequency.Read More
Passive Plus Inc. offers a line of Hi-Q/Low ESR Capacitors available in 4 case sizes. C series: 2225, 3838, 6040, and 7676. These multilayer capacitors are ultra-reliable and can be used in demanding high RF current and voltage applications. Products are available in surface mount or leaded configurations that are 100% RoHS compliant. These products are also available in a Non-magnetic termination.Read More
Passive Plus Inc. introduced the 01005BB104 and 0201BB104 ultra-broadband 100 nF multilayer ceramic capacitors. The 01005BB104 – has a case measuring (mils) 16 x 8 x 8, and offers resonant-free RF coupling/DC blocking from 16 KHz (lower 3-dB frequency) to beyond 65 GHz with < 1 dB insertion loss and < -15 dB return loss on suitable substrates. The 01005BB104 is rated at a DC working voltage (WVDC) of 4.0.Read More
Passive Plus Inc. now offers an extended-value for the traditional NP0, Hi-Q 0505 and 1111 case sizes. These parts exhibit low ESR/ESL, low noise, high self-resonance as well as ultra-stable performance over temperature. Usually used for wireless broadcasting equipment, mobile base stations, GPS, MRI, and radar applications and offered in magnetic and non-magnetic terminations.Read More
Passive Plus, Inc. (PPI) now provides its customers with the option of specifying capacitor assemblies with SAC 305 solder, which is 100 percent lead free. Previous to this breakthrough, engineers were limited to specifying capacitor assemblies that typically utilized a high lead content solder to attach the leads to the capacitors.Read More
Passive Plus Inc., (PPI) in another industry first, now provides as standard, lot code marking on all leaded capacitors.Read More
In its continuing efforts to deliver the highest reliability leaded capacitors and assemblies, Passive Plus, Inc. (PPI) now performs a 100 HR. Burn In on all leaded 1111, 2225, 3838, 6040 and 7676 series capacitors and assemblies. The PPI 100 Burn In, is done at extended voltage and 125 C, with capacitance, dissipation factor (inverse of Q), and IR (Insulation Resistance) measurements taken before and after burn in.Read More
Passive Plus Inc. (PPI) has added an industry leading 100% automated CSAM (C Mode Scanning Acoustic Microscopy) internal inspection to all of its high power 2225, 3838, 6040 and 7676 capacitor series RF capacitors. The primary benefit of 100% CSAM internal inspection is increased reliability, by screening out electrically undetectable internal defects such as voids, cracks, de-laminations or electrode dis-continuities.Read More
Among the most common reasons multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) fail is improper hand soldering to printed circuit boards. Typically, one or more hairline cracks develop in the ceramic, defects that may even have an imperceptible effect on initial performance, but that manifest with time, circuit board flexure, or temperature excursions. Herein are a few tips, suggestions, and caveats to be aware of in performing a reliable hand soldering attachment.Download
Passive Plus, Inc. (PPI) has developed a series of Broadband and Ultra-Broadband capacitors. These capacitors are intended primarily for coupling RF signals or, occasionally, for bypassing them to ground, while blocking DC.Download
There are a number of circuits that require coupling RF signals or bypassing them to ground while blocking DC over extraordinarily large RF bandwidths. The applications for which they are intended typically require small, surface-mountable (SMT) units with low insertion losses, reflections, and impedances across RF frequencies extending from the tens of KHz to the tens of GHz, and temperatures typically ranging from -55 to +85 0C. This note focuses on a particular implementation of these devices.Download
